"Baby quilt made from cotton, silk, linen and unbleached cotton muslin sourced in the USA, Vietnam and Cambodia. Features Vietnamese silk, my old Ralph Lauren pillowcases, African wax print, printed textile hand-me-downs from other quilters, and bound with the remnants of a Mexican dress worn by my preschool teacher. Inspired by blue eggs and a diet of fruit and insects."
